President's Day Holiday

Occasional Parker Program Update

The purchase of day passes at the entrance to the President Street garage is causing entry delays for you and for the other users of the parking garage and is creating traffic backups on President Street during peak morning arrival times.   Day-pass services require an entry transaction and cannot be handled elsewhere.  You can help us speed up your and everyone’s entry if you will do the following:

  • Pay in cash.   Credit card is convenient, but the new CHP cards have added significantly to the time it takes to process a transaction.
  • Bring the right denomination, $5, so that change doesn’t have to be made.
  • Purchase day passes in advance.   Stop by the parking office one day on your way back to your vehicle, purchase up to five passes a month and have a few day passes on hand when you need them. 

A purchase with cash at the garage entrance will shave off three-fourths of the time it takes for a credit card transaction.   Transaction time at the garage entrance with a pre-purchased pass is reduced to a few seconds--just long enough to date stamp the day pass. 

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Hagood Parking Update

A portion of the main Hagood lot that has been reconfigured by the Trident Construction project team will be restored to use on Wednesday, February 10.  At the same time an equal portion of the southeast quadrant will be closed.  The remainder of the southwest quadrant will be restored to use as soon as the ground has dried enough to allow vehicles to drive on it.  See photo below. 

Please be reminded that additional parking is available at the Ballpark VIP lot and at the former Employment Security Building on Lockwood Drive.   Part of the small parking area at Stoney Field is unusable due to heavy rain, but part remains serviceable.  Stoney Field is owned by the city and loaned to us for whatever use we can make of it while the main lot is under expansion.  (MUSC’s use of the area is temporary and on a space-usable basis, and the city has no plans to make surface improvements.) 

The expansion of the main Hagood lot is still targeted for completion in mid-March.  MUSC’s plans to add a remote parking location are still under development.
